Deep storage : collecting, storing, and archiving in art( Book )

13 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 452 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This publication documents the importance of collecting and packaging, storing, and archiving as a contemporary artistic strategy. It lends surprising insight into the process of creating art, which itself is a result of collecting experiences and materials, by using the work of forty internationally celebrated artists as examples." "In Deep Storage, these archives of materials become works of art themselves. The documentation and exhibition of these extreme departures from conventional forms of collection and recollection is a stunning project in the avant-garde tradition." "In accordance with its subject matter, this book is organized like a storage file of information, in which the broad spectrum of artistic contributions and essays and texts by twenty-five authors is presented alphabetically."

Salvador Dalí's Dream of Venus : the surrealist funhouse from the 1939 World's Fair by Ingrid Schaffner( Book )

8 editions published between 2002 and 2003 in English and held by 370 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Life magazine wrote that one funhouse at the 1939 New York World's Fair stood out among the others: Salvador Dali's Dream of Venus." "The building's modern expressionist exterior, with an entrance framed by a woman's legs, and shocking interior, including the bare-breasted "living liquid ladies" who swam inside the tanks, was a controversial sensation. The funhouse was so successful that it reopened for a second season after the fair closed. But once torn down it faded from memory, and its outlandishness became the stuff of urban myth. Now, more than sixty years later, a collection of Dream of Venus images by noted photographer Eric Schaal has been discovered and presented here in its depth and beauty. In stunning black-and-white and early Kodachrome, the photographs show both the construction and the completion of the funhouse - from Dali painting a melting clock to showgirls parading for their audience. Salvador Dali's Dream of Venus reveals not only a mind-boggling work of architecture, but also a unique creation by one of the most fertile imaginations of the twentieth century."--Jacket
Julien Levy : portrait of an art gallery( Book )

Julien Levy (1906-1981) was one of the most influential art dealers of the twentieth century.

His was the first American gallery to sponsor a show on Surrealism and to champion Neo-Romanticism, Magic Realism, and European photography. This book, which accompanies an exhibition on the Julien Levy Gallery, includes reproductions of paintings, photographs, and film stills from museums and private collections, as well as art and ephemera from Levy's own collection.

The essential Andy Warhol by Ingrid Schaffner( Book )

6 editions published between 1999 and 2002 in English and French and held by 206 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Prince of Pop, Andy Warhol created the most sensational art of the 1960s. He took snapshots of Marilyn Monroe, Coca Cola bottles, and dollar bills, and transformed them into radical works of art through the simple act of reproduction, silkscreening his paintings by the yard! Yet despite his fame, Warhol remains an enigmatic figure: Was he a glamorous decadent, exploiting the sex and drug subcultures? Or was he the most brilliant social commentator of his day?

The puppet show( Book )

6 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 175 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Institute of Contemporary Art (ICA) is pleased to present "The Puppet Show," a group exhibition that looks at the imagery of puppets in contemporary art. International in scope, "The Puppet Show" brings together 29 artists and several generations, as reflected by works that range from a 1974 installation by Dennis Oppenheim to a new animation by the Swedish artist Nathalie Djurberg. The exhibition concentrates on sculpture, video and photography. Some of the works involve actual puppets (marionettes, shadow puppets, hand puppets) and artists performing as puppeteers. Other images evoke topics associated with puppetry (manipulation, miniaturization, agency, control). Collectively these works show puppets to be a provocative and relevant imagery - one that moves deep into social, political and psychological terrains." "The puppet show takes as a historic point of departure one of the first episodes of avante-garde art history: Alfred Jarry's 1896 play Ubu Roi that was conceived as a puppet show. Ubu's reign continues with the work of the South African artist William Kentridge in collaboration with the Handspring Puppet Company. More recently, puppets have taken hold of pop consciousness by way of films, theater, computer games and animation. On a more political note, current events and national leadership raise questions of agency that cogently relate to puppets. Together with these collective points of reference, "The Puppet Show" poses a larger cultural question: why do puppets matter now?"--BOOK JACKET
The essential Joseph Cornell by Ingrid Schaffner( Book )

3 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 172 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Joseph Cornell, the American assemblage artist, was a quirky (but passionate) collector of bric-a-brac who used trinkets, scraps of paper, paint, and lots of glue to arrange imaginative worlds inside of glass-fronted wooden boxes and frames. Did you know that: Cornell's infatuation with movie stars inspired some of his most famous works, which he created as tributes to the women he adored from afar: Lauren Bacall, Greta Garbo, and Marilyn Monroe; Cornell's genius lay in his transformation of everyday objects into enchanting realms; Cornell's loyalty to family led to his lifetime support of his mother and invalid brother, with whom he shared a modest house on Utopia Parkway in Queens, New York. 72 illustrations, including 47 plates in full color
